Abstract

RIT community members may access full-text via RIT Libraries licensed databases: http://library.rit.edu/databases/ A history of the education of deaf persons is by its very nature a study of social and cultural change. This notion is epitomized in tracing prevailing attitudes about deaf people and how they learn. Such an understanding of deafness as an educational condition shapes the historical highlights discussed in this chapter.
